    Im not a new member, but for some reason when they switched everything my account was deleted. Anyways, I decided to take everyones friendly advice a while ago and started looking for employment that would utilize my education and be a little bit more, how should I say....user friendly of a work place. After what seemed like forever (though really wasn't) I am now no longer affiliated with FedEx Express (or other opco under the parent corporation), and am VERY happily employed elsewhere :). Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all your information and insite, and hope it all ends well for everyone still with the company (one way or another).

    Thanks again,

    Me :)

    You should read some Bukowski. Freedom isn't for everybody. If it was, you wouldn't be spending the amount of time that you do posting on this site.

    Who I was before doesn't really matter...because now imout ;).

    As for benefits, I will have a full (traditional) pension, no premiums for dental/vision, obviously healthcare but without going into specifics lets just say its insanely better, paid vacation, sick time, etc. Other benefits not necessarily considered all the time....flexible work schedule, no more worrying about getting called in or forced to work on my day off, annual pay increases that are noticeable with a defined top out timeline, not to mention a supervisor with a moral compass.

    Freedom is whatever you define it to be. I love to be free to express my opinions about FedEx. To each his own, so if you don't like it, I could care less.

    I certainly have no objection to how you spend the precious time that has been allotted to you, Mr. FedEx. However, if you equate freedom with taking time out to proffer bitter diatribes about the employer that you have already dedicated a substantial portion of your life to, then you may want to rethink the whole concept.

    To whomever you used to be: Congrats and best of luck in your new venture!
    I have yet to talk to anyone who regretted leaving this cesspool (whether they left by their own choice or otherwise)

    Congratulations on finding employment that puts your education to use! I'm still a few years away from finishing up my degrees.

    Ahhh...nice to hear someone escaping and looking forward to a more successful workplace than FDX. Now you can be one of the many people I've delivered to to say "Hey, I used to work for you guys".

    I'd love to see another local employer woo away at least 50% of our stations staff (including myself) and leave the managers in a jam.

    if we lost 50% of our couriers I'd hope it was the old ones.. since we'd only need
    a few new people to replace their slowness.

    The "old ones" are simply practicing WAD....which all Expressers should be doing - young and old alike. I mean what's the rush after all?...to make Fred and Co. richer sooner?

    fredly, as a 20 year employee who can probably put your numbers to shame, you are an ass-clown.

    Actually when a brand new cover driver(just transfers in from out of state) runs your route and finishes 2 hours before you normally do, after only running the route 4 times, you whoever you are senior or not need to be spoken to. I'm not talking about rushing, and I'm all for WAD WORK AS DIRECTED, not WALK ALL DAY. It's clear to Management and others when you work the clock, unfortunately management for the most part has no guts when it comes to motivating some of these old folks.
